Fostering women's leadership
FTFA implements six programmes that benefit thousands of women across South Africa each year: Trees for
All, Trees for Homes, EduPlant, Food Gardens for Africa, Bamboo for All and FEED.
The six programmes enhance food security, respond to climate change, alleviate poverty, teach women skills
and create a healthier and more sustainable environment. FTFA continues to innovate, adding new creative
approaches to greening, sustainable natural resource management, behavioral change, and climate change
mitigation, adaptation and awareness. Women’s leadership is at the heart of FTFA’s programmes.
For example, the Trees for Homes, Trees for All, EduPlant and Food Gardens for Africa programmes are led by
female programme managers, supported by female entrepreneurs and have a positive impact on women from South
Africa’s poorest communities.
